Janie rushed into her fiancé's arms as he held the forgotten car keys up, a comment on the tip of his tongue.

"I forget those entirely too much." she said, smiling up at the much taller man. A fraction of a second later, steel gates lowered all at once, and the parking garage plunged into darkness.

"Get down." Ian whispered.

Is redemption truly possible?

Redeem: To pay the penalty of; to make amends for; to serve as an equivalent or offset for; to atone for; to compensate; as, to redeem an error.

Is that possible? It should be. If you mess up, why can't you be redeemed?

A few months ago, I would have said yes. It is possible. You mess up and you do your penance. Everything is forgiven after that. Then, I moved into the real world.

The real world is a place where you make a group of friends that suddenly starts ignoring you one day. You don't know what you did wrong. They won't tell you, but suddenly you can't get in to see them anymore. They ignore you when you try starting a conversation. They stop calling and there is never an explanation. How can you be redeemed from that?

The real world is a place where you check records to see if people were punished for a crime, only to find out that they weren't. It's where you find out the people that destroyed an entire town lived the rest of their days in peace. They were never prosecuted, or chastised for burning homes, and killing families.

The real world is a place where your family can try to kill you and not feel the least bit bad for it. It's where they can lie to you and say it's for the best. What makes up for gunshot wounds, or running for your life down streets where bystanders ignore what's happening? How do you atone for telling your Grandchild that she should never have been born?

In response to the question: It's sometimes, but not always possible. I wish it was. I want to live in a world where it is, but the possibility of me finding one is very slim.

I'm so happy about school. Ori? Thank you. You haven't even friended this journal but I know you can totally read it. You're giving me a chance to settle, to learn things that I wouldn't at home.

I'm happy about that, really I am.

The thing is I want to give up traveling.
Impossible, right? Maybe college will get that out of my system.

Janie nodded, and obeyed.

ooc: This is a divination process used in Nigeria.  I know some details are wrong with this.
